    The new Ashton Gate

    Although I have been a season ticket holder for 30 + years and stood in the enclosure before that, I am not sure I look back at the old stadium of matches in the late 70's 80's etc with such rose tinted glasses. I like that you can now have a pint at the game, the fans village with bands playing, being actually able to get food at half time or have a piss in a decent toilet, sit in the stands and watch the game without a big RSJ partially blocking my view, watch action replays on TV and whilst we can always find things that were better or can be better I am quite happy with the way it is.
  2. Not specifically replying to the OP which was just a re-hash of what others have already said on hear (oh well typical journalism!), but the theme repeated again from other threads about how the club has changed, well as a season ticket holder for 30+ years and standing in the enclosure before that, I glad the club is modernising, or it will be like the other dinosaurs and become extinct. If you want someone to blame about modern football and changes then blame the introduction of the premier league, who changed the dynamics of English football to keep most of the money in the top division and create elite clubs with massive earning differentials. I agree the club does not always get it right and AB departure (although we do not know the full story) and ticket pricing are clear issues to fans. But for some to always want to jump on the band wagon and use anything to attack the Lansdowns or Bristol Sport, is crazy. I have no problem with the concept of BS, the more that can be done to generate income which finances the club the better, I don't believe the day will ever come when BCFC identity is lost to BS, but if that day came its easy to change my opinion and then react against it.

    Silent Majority? Johnson In or Johnson Out?

    Quite simply as I make reference to both his playing time and appointment that I was not a fan of his, the relevance is I have changed my opinion and want to believe he can improve us, rather than some blind faith love in I have always had.

    Silent Majority? Johnson In or Johnson Out?

    Was never a fan of LJ as a player and disappointed when appointed, but the style of football we played pre -xmas means he should get until at least next Christmas to prove he can turn around what went wrong. Some are very quick to only blame the manager, although he picks the team and tactics, it seemed a similar team and tactics post xmas with different results, so does some of the blame rest with the players? we don't know what has gone on behind closed doors following the January transfer window, perhaps players in (or lack of) upset the apple cart, maybe players not being allowed big money moves away chucked dummies out of prams? - truth is 99.9% of us know sweet FA about what really went on and I think LJ should have the opportunity to turn it around.

    AdamB/Beanhead made redundant

    5 pages on and no clearer to know if true or not, just pages of wild speculation. The truth as fans is we only get a tiny snap shot of what goes on at the club and whilst I agree it would be a shame if AB is leaving, its very difficult to be so judgmental without the whole story, which we are very unlikely to ever find out due to the confidentiality agreement that will no doubt be agreed upon. Some of the MA stories do seem a bit worrying, and these type of people do surround themselves with their own appointed close allies, to cover their ass.

    Defence is the problem

    Its all explained :- knuckleballed Must be why FF got no where any of them against Hull Worth mentioning Hull's keeper was nearly as shit, marginally better as he did not keep kicking and making touch

    Defence is the problem

    Not so sure, I think Baker has been very poor recently, not sure if still carrying injury but has played a part in a number of goals conceded. Hopefully he can return to early season form next season

    Matty Taylor

    cant seem to link just the gif, but his snake goal celebration is brilliant https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/bristol-citys-matty-taylor-snake-1442086
  10. not often I can say this but very good piece in the evil post https://www.bristolpost.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/whats-happened-bristol-city-who-1432980
  11. It does seem January is having a massive impact on our downward slide and whilst never a Johnson fan and unsure if he should stay or go, it is certain players performance that have been way below the standards set earlier in the season. Just some thoughts on possible reason why, but am not ITK Not sure squad look like a united group, possible splits and infighting Poor recruitment, Diony gamble backfired, Kent (who is shit) allegedly having to play (could piss off some players) Changing system to incorporate players like Kent Lack of real push in January given negative message to players that its OK to tread water Possible players moves out blocked until summer, so just playing out the season We don't seem to have the energy and joined up pressing as per earlier season Confidence has been shot in teams ability to win or see out games Players playing with injuries ahead of others who are not Or could be we have either found are level or the players are not playing fro the manager, but this is not he same team I watched earlier in the year and whilst I do think LJ has F**cked up some recent games for this group not to even get a shot on target shows their is a bit more to than just tactics. What ever the issue needs to be addressed or we are in for a painful season next year

    The Cardiff City FC v Bristol City FC Match Day Thread 34

    Seem to remember Diony can play on the right, so maybe going for a bit physical approach to Colin's thugs, with Kent as an impact sub

    lack of quality in front of goal

    In fact I was not, i was not really referring to the strikers, more our poor quality from direct free kicks in front of goal and as a separate point the number of times an opposition will clear a corner to an out field player who has a rush of blood and shoots rather than playing the ball back in to our big defenders or strikers, in both instances tamely well wide of the goal.
